democrats that joined obama's team. host: that question -- raises questions about whether john kerry could be picked as secretary of state. guest: if john kerry is collected, you have an election, and who would run for that seat? scott brown. host: "christian science monitor" headline -- "paul ryan returns to house -- is he ready for a bigger role in the gop?" guest: there is speculation that he is interested in staying on. he appears to be one of the few willing to take the difficult decisions, what ever the political fallout is. even the budget document, there is a bottom line, and everyone can see what the projected deficits are if these choices are made, where the cuts are. it is something paul ryan has been willing to do and that puts him in the heart of every important decision that the house will have to make this session. i think he has definitely kept himself in the heart of it. leadership appears to be willing to give him a waiver. i do not think he's going anywhere. host: dog to sit, your publication has this had lied -- bob to set, your publication has ?ck -- bob cus guest: a
, when john kerry ran against george w. bush, the proportion of the electorate that was white, according to the exit polls, was 79%. 79 and everyone hundred voters were non-hispanic white. four years later, and in 2008, that number had declined to 74%. this year, that number declined to 72%. in the meantime, the african- american share of the vote over that time increased from 11 to 13. the hispanic share from six to 10. and the asian american share from one to three. we are experiencing serious demographic change. if you look at these different populations, the white population, the non-spec white population in the united states is a seat -- it aging. the median age is 42. that means half the white people in the united states are older than 42. the median age for the black population is 33. the median age for the hispanic population is 25. half the hispanic population in the united states right now is the younger than 25 years old. what does that mean? it would not mean anything if our politics and parties were not largely based upon race and class and ethnicity. right now, they are. th

, they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him and think he has the experience. i don't think it has to do with her womanhood. beyond that, this is shaping up as a nasty fight. it could get quite personal. and i think everybody has an interest and sort of we just had an election and we are trying to create a bipartisanship in washington. and i think she may have to do some private rounds and that would help a lot. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. did you hear anything from the president that sounded like a compromise that would work? >> not today. this is a president who clearly feels that he has got a lot of leverage now. i heard that in the president today. and what he was doing was -- and dan i can talk more about this, calling the republican bluff. saying one thing that we all agree on is extending the tax cuts for the middle class. they believe that if they were to do that, they would lose their leverage but the president was saying okay guys, let's do this and then we'll move onto the second step of the process. and i agree with david. i'
really got it. howard dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing
in the after math 6 john kerry's loss,figure that can bring it b? >> part of what we did in 2005 in the after math 6 john kerry's loss, they're going through the same question. who is the leader of the sdmic party. and part of what we did frankly between governor dean and leadership in the house and the senate, we brought governors in and mayors in and kind of said how do we as a party better communicate our values. we looked at we're losing votes among people whom they share our values. so how do we do a better job of communicating those values. and think that's the kind of tough look that the republicans really are going to have to take in terms of where they go from here and what kind of party they want to be. >> but the democrats after '88, though, they he did a lot of soul searching and along came bill clinton. >> that's true. i just think in 2005 we were in a slightly different position. >> i think there's also a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. and that is the nominating process for the gop. because you've had this exodus of independents. that needs
. if you are a john mccain you can go back to the senate and john kerry the same thing. but there is no place in politics no elective sauoffice t mitt romney holds now. i don't see where he fits into this party now. >> he can become a cable tv host. who knows. what do you think? it seems like a lot of the republican party today was moving quickly. >> it sounds like a -- last night he didn't talk about we are going to continue to fight in the future. id sounded like he tried, he lost and there are a lot of people who regarded him as a transitional figure. so i think he will probably go back to business. i don't see politics in his future. >> will he pick up where he left off? broaden out there? >> he has time. he has something that is hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. and he is a bon fied brainyac when it comes to budget things. he understands the budget. so there is still a place for him there. he does speak for the conservative wing in the fiscal part and he is pragmatic. there has been some talk maybe he should go to a think tank and t
demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some

, and i do think underneath here, there isn't as much confidence with susan rice. they favor john kerry as next secretary of state. they think he has the requisite experience. i don't think it has anything to do with her womanhood. it goes to confidence. this is a nasty fight. could could get very personal, it could go mondano-o-mano. it is very personal. we are trying to create a sense of bipartisanship to get this calmed down. i think the president would send some quiet elm sears up to capitol hill to see if he has the votes to avoid a filibuster. and i think she would have to do some private rounds that will help a lot perhaps in defuzzing some of this. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. congressional leaders headed to the white house for high-level talks on this. did you hear anything that sounded like a compromise? >> not today. but, look this is a president that clearly feels that he's got a lot of leverage now. and while i heard that in the president today and what he was doing was essentially, and dana can talk more about this than i can, calling the republican c
of this, there is not as much confidence with susan rice as with republicans. they favor john kerry as the next secretary of state. they work well with him, and they think he has the requisite experience. i don't think that it has to do with her womanhood, but goes down to the confidence question. this is shaping up as a very nasty fight. it could get quite personal. it could go mano-o-mano. it is very personal. we are trying to create a sense of bipartisanship to get this calmed down. what the president needs to do, i think, is to have some quiet emissaries up on capitol hill to see if he has the votes to beat a filibuster, and i think she would have to do some private rounds that will help a lot in defusing this. >> a lot of talk about the impending fiscal cliff. congressional leaders headed to the white house for the high-level talks on this. did you hear anything that sounded like a compromise? >> no, not today. and this is not to say we won't. but, look, this is a president that clearly feels that he's got a lot of leverage now. and while i --i heard that in the president today
. senator john kerry and national security adviser tom donlon have also been mentioned as potential replacements. hillary clinton may remain secretary of state for the beginning of the president's second term. >>> this morning we're seeing how emotional president obama became during and after his re-election bid. >> what you guys have done to continue the work that i'm doing, i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. and what you have done -- [ applause ] >> the president got choked up when he thanked members of his campaign staff on wednesday. he told his staffers and volunteers that he is confident they will do amazing things in their lives. >>> dozens of students at one virginia college may be disciplined for how they reacted to the president's victory. hampdon sydney college said 40 students were upset and set off fireworks, threw bottles, and shouted racial slurs at members of a minority student organization. some of them even made threats. the incident never turned physically violent. the all male college's president said some of the students may even be expell
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
charges. >> senator john kerry will be nominated to president obama's cabinet but not as secretary of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney lost the election wants to get to work. >> the issues we talked about sevenyears ago are what we have today. economy and debt-crisis and i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we have to find common ground to make it work. >> when asked about running on 2016. he said he was tired of presidential pilots right now. >> gas rationing in new jersey came to an end. the was put in place after gas shortages that had cars lined up for miles. governor christy said all supplies are replenished. darkne
wanted to tell you earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my rent. i work so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislature then i served with. he's been out front on issues dealing with climate change, and for structure, development and many other things. i don't know any conversations at the president or anyone in the white house has had within any conversation i've had with john kerry. he does not bring up has been secretary of anything. i'll do everything i can to help him if he is chosen. we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think i've heard he you how i feel about scott brown. [inaudible] what do you think his priority should be coming out? >> the president's priorities as he is outlined this campaign, to protect the mail class and small business. we are one vote away from that accomplishment -- been accomplished. all we have to decide the house of representatives web are built. they should do this to help the
it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into this party at this point. >> he can become a cable tv host. >> who knows. >> with one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today -- >> he's gone, he's over, history. it w it sounded like a valedictory. he didn't talk about our cause will live, we're going to continue to fight in the future. it was sort of like he was going to recede, he had done it twice, he lost. there are a lot of people who regarded him as the transitional figurine when he was the nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bain capital, who knows. i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? he's long been considered one of the rising stars of the republican congress. will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him try to broaden out, claim the mantle of the party standard bearer? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a hou
the independent vote ended up losing the presidential contest. john kerry in 2004 won it by 1 percentage point, and then mitt romney in this election just last week won it by 5 percentage points but lost. it raises the question, you know, it's always good to win independent voters, but it might not determinative of an election. >> what is the lesson learned here. it's great to consider those that are independent, they're not strongly tied to one aparty or the other. if they're not the difference maker, not that they should be ignored, but how much do you play to them? >> the difference maker seems to be in all the elections the party identification. having democrats or republicans more than the opposition, that's a very good indication who is going to end up winning an election. the other thing is how do you define "independents"? are they right down the middle and swing from one election to another? or as the theory goes, when the political wins are against their party, they're republican, they're not happy with the republican party. they say i'm going to call myself an independent because i'
kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu

? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
of state and -- as secretary of state and there is talk of bringing in senator john kerry as secretary of defense. some conservatives are criticizing that decision, calling it an odd choice and saying he would do better as secretary of state. for that job though, the president is considering u.n. ambassador susan rice. g.o.p. strategist see this as a chance to re-examine the administration's handling of the attacks in benghazi. senior republican aide who spokane onomously to the "new york times" called rice the poster child for the idea of a white house cover-up. >>> the senate rarely rejects a cabinet pick but this could be a long and painful process ahead of president obama. more bill press is coming up after the break. we're live in our chat room. join us there at current.com/billpress. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. i've been a nurse since 1979. i love being a nurse. a few years ago a friend i went to grade school with showed me a book she had kept fr
